So, what do these obscure images have in common? Well, the hole in the ceiling (top right) was gnawed by a possum (left), who lives up there with her fuzzy baby. Whenever I sharpen a pencil with my trusty Staedtler pencil sharpener (below right) it makes a noise very like a possum hissing. The resident ceiling marsupials get all excited about this and stick their noses through the hole to see what’s going on. So, I started feeding them bits of vegetable… and now, of couse they think pencil sharpening=food. Pavlov’s Possum.
